Water Tower Out of Service Sept. 26-30, 2022

Please note the City’s Water Tower will be out of service Sept. 26-30, 2022. 

In follow up to the water tower maintenance that took place earlier this summer, contractors will be back onsite completing a few final tasks.

Water service to the city will be provided by the city’s wells set to continuous pressure mode.  During this time, you may notice fire hydrants near the edge of city limits draining off excess water, this is intentional and no cause for alarm.

All testing/sampling has been completed per EGLE guidelines.
 
Below is a before and after of the “facelift”.

Along with internal maintenance & safety updates, the tower was given a new look.

Water Tower Maintenance Update

Updated: 6.21.22 10:42am
 
Work is nearing completion on the water tower renovations. Painting is complete, and DPW is working on filling the tower for testing. Because of this, water is flowing through service lines quicker than usual. This is stirring up sediment and may cause discoloration to your water.
DPW is required by EGLE to fill, drain, and refill the water tower. This process will require 3-4 days pending water sample results.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we bring the tower back into service.
Please contact city hall with any questions. We will post another update once all testing is complete to announce when the tower is officially back in service.

City Formally Names New Fitness Loop after Lifelong Resident

Press Release: June 17, 2022

City of Perry Formally Names New Fitness Loop After Lifelong Resident

With the help of the Parks Committee, the city has installed a fitness loop at Jubilee Park. The loop includes a marked walking path with five exercise stations and two benches. Due to ongoing supply issues, delivery of two stations has been delayed – but the project should be finalized in the coming months.

At the June 16 City of Perry Council Meeting, the fitness loop was formally named the “George
Dunn Fitness Loop” in recognition of Mr. Dunn’s long-term commitment to not just the parks, but the City of Perry. At the meeting, Mayor Sue Hammond read a formal proclamation highlighting the many ways Mr. Dunn has contributed to his community.

Mr. Dunn was raised in Perry and as a 1956 Perry High School Graduate has been contributing to the community ever since. Mr. Dunn has been volunteering as an appointed citizen-member of the Parks Committee since 2003, but has been involved in park planning since the committee’s inception.

He played an integral role in the success of this project, and we thank him for his dedication and continued support.

Many friends and family members were in attendance at the meeting. Plans are in place for signage at the park once installation is complete.
